What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A Fox 36 F150 Performance fork and Fox Float Performance DPS shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
Forget about discouraging slippery roots and momentum-sucking sand — the Tallboy 27+ is pure inspiration when it comes to tackling challenging terrain. Wide 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires are the secret to your success, providing extra traction and float thanks to the larger contact patch. Paired with 110mm of VPP suspension in the rear and 130mm up front, you'll find the Tallboy's stance to be perfectly suited for picking your way up gnarly climbs as well as maintaining speed over soft and loose surfaces. The Tallboy 27+ Carbon C S is built around Santa Cruz' updated carbon frame and includes a Flip-Chip that changes the bike's geometry to accommodate 29-inch wheels, giving you supreme versatility in just one bike. Fox Float suspension components keep the tires glued to the ground while power is efficiently transferred through SRAM's wide-range GX Eagle 1x12 transmission. SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes, a Reverb Stealth dropper post, and a Race Face 35mm bar/stem interface all come together to create the ultimate experience in bike handling and control.
Nothing beats the acceleration of a hardtail mountain bike and the Santa Cruz Highball C is purpose-built for high-intensity XC pursuits. On this iteration, Santa Cruz shaved half a pound from the weight of the frame and redesigned the seat stay/top tube junction to give you more comfort over the long haul without sacrificing speed. With three water bottle mounts, threaded BB reliability, and internally routed cables, the only thing you'll be concerned about is when to make the turn back home. The Highball S/C build ups the ante with SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain and level TL brakes to give you a great mix of performance and value. A remote-actuated Fox 32 Rhythm fork guides you through rough terrain while the Race Face/DT Swiss wheelset and Maxxis Aspen tires do their part when it's time to grip and rip. Saddle up and experience the rocket-like feel only a carbon hardtail can deliver.
From charging up punchy climbs and sprinting across flowing singletrack, to rallying over root-infested descents and ripping through turns, the Tallboy 29 Carbon combines all-out speed and rowdy trail-taming agility for nonstop fun everywhere you ride. 110mm of VPP rear suspension lets you mash on the pedals with satisfying response, and thanks to 120mm of Fox suspension up front your point-and-shoot attack is rewarded with predictable, stable handling. Boost hub spacing improves tracking through the rough stuff and, coupled with the geometry-changing Flip Chip, also allows you to run a 27.5+ wheelset for amazing versatility from just one bike. The Tallboy 29 Carbon C R build features SRAM's NX 1x11 transmission, Level T hydraulic disc brakes, and a Race Face Aeffect dropper post to create a trail bike that's ready for your wildest adventures.
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the 29er paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents while putting you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Santa Cruz didn't stop with simple updates in frame design to up this big-wheeler's appeal, though. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 29er wheelset or change to 27.5+ for extra traction in sloppy conditions. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower 29 Carbon C R comes equipped with a 140mm-travel RockShox Revelation fork, Fox Float Performance shock and workhorse SRAM NX drivetrain that offers solid performance in a wallet friendly package. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
